(Newser) – Congratulations are in order for Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp. After getting together in 2011 and breaking up in 2014, the pair got back together in 2017 (we're guessing the reunion happened after Mellencamp said that Ryan hated him "to death") and is now engaged, according to this post on Ryan's Instagram page. Sources tell Page Six the couple started putting together a "wedding-like celebration" earlier this year, and on Wednesday, Ryan was spotted wearing an engagement ring. Ryan, 56, has a 26-year-old son with her first husband, Dennis Quaid, and a daughter she adopted in 2006, per USA Today. Mellencamp, 67, has been married three times before and has five kids. (Mellencamp expands on why he's apparently so hateable.)
